Iran blasted the US and Israel on Saturday for their reported plans to attack the Islamic Republic over its nuclear program, urging the international community, including the United Nations, to condemn the two nations for their combative remarks, Channel 10 news reported.

Iranian Ambassador to Uruguay Hojjatollah Soltani said that such threats were a gross violation of intentional law.

"The UN, by condemning Israel and the US, will have to prove to all that the world belongs to all countries and nations, and is not in the hands of only a few states," Channel 10 quoted Sultani as saying.

The Iranian ambassador's comments came days before the UN nuclear watchdog was set to release a report that may provide evidence for Tehran's nuclear ambitions, including high-explosives testing that could be utilized for nuclear weapons.

Earlier Saturday, Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi denied any links between the country's missile testing and its nuclear program, saying any document that connects the two is "baseless and non-authentic," Iran's FARS News Agency reported.
